duplicate contacts

It is very likely that you have saved more than once the data of the same person on your cell phone. I’m sure it happened to you more than twice. But don’t worry, there is a quick and easy way to fix it. So to help clean up some of this mess you’ve unknowingly created, Google developed a tool called Fix & Manage with which you can remove them. That’s how it works:

  1. Open the Google Contacts app on your phone
  2. Go to the bottom of the app and there you will find a tab called Fix&Manage
  3. Look for the option mix and match. With this option, Google will automatically extract all duplicates and help you in the correction process.
  4. Once the duplicates have been uploaded, you can continue with the cleaning of contacts.

Create labels

Another trick that you probably didn’t know about this app and that we are going to give you as an extra, is that you can create and use labels. It is the same function that you already use in Gmail, only this time it helps you to better classify and locate your contacts. If you want to create them, you just have to go to the app’s hamburger menu and look for the “create tag” option, define a name for the tag and click on “create”.

Now, to add contacts to that label you just have to touch the contact icon with a plus sign next to it in the upper right corner. Choose contacts by touching them by pressing and holding the names in your list. So you can get the most out of this application.
